I know that you said that the contest would be over at the end of the year, but since you didn't get very many recipes, is it still going? Thanks.

Well, this one isn't the best of recipes, but it is a lot of fun for kids. When we were growing up, we used to make these at Thanksgiving as desserts.

Fun Dessert Turkeys

3 tablespoons of butter/margarine
4 cups of miniature marshmallows
6 cups of crisped rice cereal (such as Rice Krispies)
1 package of round chocolate cookies (such as Oreos or Thin Mints)
1 small bag of candy corn
1 small tube of chocolate icing

1) Melt butter in a saucepan
2) Add marshmallows to saucepan. Stir until melted.
3) Add crisped rice cereal. Stir until well coated.
4) Remove from heat.
5) Roll mixture into balls about 2 inches in diameter. These become the bodies of the turkeys.
6) Use icing to attach two cookies to each ball at a 90 degree angle. One cookie will be a stable base for the turkey; the other will be the turkey's back. (If you are using Oreos, separate each Oreo into two separate cookies, and place the cream side in toward the turkey.)
7) Use icing to attach four pieces of candy corn to the turkey's back. The candy corn should point inward, and the wide portion should extend above the top of the cookie. These pieces of candy corn form the turkey's tail feathers.
8) Use icing to attach one piece of candy corn to the front of the turkey's body. The candy corn should point downward. This piece of candy corn forms the turkey's head.
9) Use icing to draw two dots on the top of the turkey's head. These are the eyes.

Like I said, it isn't the tastiest of recipes, but it is a lot of fun.

This illustrated pecan pie recipe by Peanutroaster looked too good to not mention on this thread. Here is a link to his blog with the recipe.

A simple side dish that my family has enjoyed for many, many years is corn on the cob. I think we've had it during many holiday dinners, but it especially makes me think of Thanksgiving (probably because in school we were taught that one of the first foods that Squanto and his friends taught the the Pilgrims to plant was corn or maize).

Here's a simple recipe for seasoned corn on the cob:

1) In a large pot, begin heating water on the stove.
2) While the water is heating, remove the husks from the ears of corn. Use water from your sink faucet to help get rid of the silk strands.
3) Place corn into boiling water. Cover pot if you wish.
4) Let corn boil for 5-10 minutes.
5) Remove corn from water and season as desired. We always rubbed butter on our corn, and we sometimes added other seasonings such as pepper, parsley, or Italian seasoning.

We've used several different types of corn over the years; the images below are of sweet corn.

What Thanksgiving (or Christmas) feast would be complete with out a turkey? Here are a couple of images of basting an oven-baked turkey to help keep it moist and delicious.

Combine the turkey with a collection of tasty sides, and you have a meal that will make you sleep for days .... or at least hours.
